Damien baseball team celebrate after defeating St. Francis.

After having to wait an additional day due to a rainout and defeating St. Francis in three close games within the last 2 weeks, it all came down to the championship game.

Both teams arrived at Ala Wai ready to play, after all, the winner would be crowned the ILH DII Champion and would be awarded the lone state berth.  Either team was not going to go down without a fight.  Damien scored first and St. Francis answered back.  At the end of the 7th inning, the score remained at 1-1. 

Great defense and a miracle bunt catch from Javin Cortez drew 2 outs early on to prevent any runs from St. Francis in the 8th inning.  Our last inning at bat, Pomai Kim draws a bases-loaded, four-pitch walk to score Jordan Donahue.  Game over, Damien defeats St. Francis (2-1).

Congratulations to our boys for placing 2nd at the 2017 Wally Yonamine Foundation Baseball Championships!
